Relationship Advice – Ways To Keep A Long Distance Romance Alive

You have just found out you are going to have to live apart from your partner… at least for the time being! Does this now spell the end of the intimacy between the two of you? It could… if you choose to let it happen. But it doesn’t have to turn out that way. You have choices to make; you will find there is much you can do to keep the spark in your relationship until you can be together again.

One of the best ways to open up to the possibilities is to embrace technology. Having the Internet at your disposal puts you light-years ahead of anyone who was in your situation just 20 years ago:

  • you no longer have to rely on “snail mail” to get a message to your loved one.
  • emails are just as personal as traditional mail and they’re instantaneous.
  • Skype is another great form of communication that offers immediate results.

Another great method of personal messaging is to send your long distance love a personal e-card. These can easily be built from services online and the great thing is you really do not have to be an “IT” expert in order to navigate through the process. Some require a small charge, but most are free to use.

Take a video of yourself giving a personal message to your loved one and email it to them. This not only lets them see you in person, but they get to hear your voice as well. You can make it as private as you wish.

Use a webcam to interact with your partner. It requires the same type of equipment on both ends… but it’s as close to being face-to-face with them as you can get without actually being able to touch them.

If you really want to utilize the convenience of a webcam, plan on having dinner together. Pick a specific night to meet online, just like you would meet if you were both in the same town. Agree on a specific type of food you both want, say Italian, for instance. Both of you purchase take-out on that night and meet at the specified time with your meal. Then, sit down in front of your webcams and eat together.

Want to show them you’re willing to put in a little extra effort? Scan the Internet for a local radio station and call it to dedicate a song to your loved one. Then, contact them and have them tune in to hear their dedication.

Ways to Bring Back The Romance in Your Love Life

Finding a love is rather simple for many. However, keeping that love is the real and ultimate test of truth. Intimacy in a relationship bubbles from romance, and it take the effort of both the partner to keep the romance alive.

For some people, the fear of falling out of love begins when they note a lack of romance. Unfortunately what they fail to do is put in a little effort and bring back the romance into their love life. Appreciating each other’s character is a key element. You and your partner may have several things that you like and have in common.

You can always point out things you do not like in your partner, or simply accept the flaw and move on with them. Nobody is born perfect isn’t it? Make sure you are not focusing on fishing out the wrongs in your partner but on the positive things making each other a better person, focusing on the right things to cherish.

Communication helps to foster a good relationship. Long talks about life and plans, investments, adventures will help cement the romance. Sharing is caring, never shut the doors of communication.

It is also good to talk and reminisce about the past, the fun time and even those tough times that you both went through. Avoid making your conversation a topic that centers about you and what you want or like, but more of what your partners would like or want yet directing it to have you included in them.

The one thing that may kill the romance is arguments. The worse of it is taking the argument to bed with you, which means you both go to bed mad and aggravating the situation. Just resolve all your issues before you go to sleep.

Silence is also an alternative, but not all the way to the bed. You should take time to say or show that you still love and care before sleeping. A good way of keeping the romance burning is by letting the evening be a moment for both to unwind and enjoy each others company.

Show each other love through simple expressions such as a cuddle. It is a solid way of building a firm foundation for the love you share. Most of the silly yet cute things that you did when you started dating are the fuels that will keep the romance alive. These are the things that most people tend to overlook.

Hold hands when watching your favourite movie, or surprise dances when you hear music that you both love, exchanging unexpected kisses and other silly little things are great expression of love that will work wonders, igniting the romance.

Life is too short for arguments, spread the love around.
